Hey Hickey, You So Fine Photo

Spit-swapping. Lip-locking. Frenchin’. Tonsil hockey.

Making out is perhaps one of life’s greatest little joys (until it isn’t, and then it’s one of life’s most awkward formalities), but sometimes the activity comes with a little baggage. For this edition of Women’s Health Wednesday, we addressed a controversial coital practice that many of us are well acquainted with: the hickey. Tricky though the hickey may be--placement? Pain-to-pleasure ratio? Vampire teeth?--our team discovered that the social implications of these suckers are more than skin deep. Whether you hate ‘em or love ‘em, you’ve been on the receiving end of hickey-shaming or maybe you’ve doled it out--even if you’ve never had one--check out Team THINX for Women’s Health Wednesday as we take a bite out of hickey culture.
